I thought this might be a fun thread to get started. My question is: What is your oldest, yet relied upon piece of equipment? By this I mean, that you USE it. Not a wall hanger that still works. Is it a shot gun that you hunt with? Is it a 50 year old freezer? How about a kraught cutter from the 1800's (yeah, I do use one every other year that was my great grand dads). So what is it? And yes, you can count yourself as a piece of equipment (I had to throw that in for BroB, cuz we all know that gasoline wasn't even invented back then. :lol: ) In the era of throw away, and new is always better (in many cases true). I still get a kick out of seeing old stuff that is still doing the job. Throw it out there. I'll start. I mow weekly with a 1939 Case VC that has a 60" Woods belly mower. Actually makes for a pretty high production unit. Yep, thats right, my goto mower is 70 years old.
